London's Tina—The Tina Turner Musical is soon to be rollin' down the Atlantic with a Broadway transfer, but it's also poised to hit the airwaves. The bio-musical, starring Tony nominee Adrienne Warren as the rock 'n' roll legend, will release a West End cast recording, now available to pre-order. The album will drop digitally March 29, with a physical release to follow later in the spring.
Warren and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith are scheduled to continue in the roles of Tina and Ike Turner at the Aldwych Theatre through April 13; Warren is set to reprise her performance in the title role when the Phyllida Lloyd-directed production makes its U.S. premiere with a fall Broadway bow. A separate production will open in Hamburg in February.
Tina weaves Turner's iconic discography with a book by Katori Hall (with Frank Ketelaar and Kees Prins) to tell the story of the artist, from humble beginnings in Tennessee to global phenomenon.
